CitSciMedBlitz - speed up medical research!

Category: General

Want to speed up medical research? Fight Alzheimer's, rare disorders and other diseases in a single online challenge?

Stall Catchers, Mark2Cure & Cochrane Crowd are joining forces in an epic three-part citizen science marathon!

Starting the week of 26th of February, each platform will run a 24-hour online challenge. All challenges start and end at 3pm GMT. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to contribute for the whole 24 hours of each challenge!

The Stall Catchers challenge begins on Monday 26th February. Mark2Cure comes next, starting on Wednesday 28th February. The Cochrane Crowd challenge begins on Friday 2nd March.

Prizes will go to the top three CitSciMed Blitz contributors. The winners will need to have taken part in all challenges.

There is no need to sign up to the challenges as such. You just need to sign up to the platform(s) corresponding to the challenges you’re interested in. Once you are signed up, we will email you with a reminder or two as the Blitz approaches.
